A perfectly enjoyable quartet of interconnected contributions set around the same cursed watch from the 1730s to the 1940s.

The twelfth book in the Lady Darby mystery series takes place in 1832. Keira, Sebastian, and their six-month-old daughter are staying with Sebastian's father as he recovers from almost being killed. Things are finally going well with her father-in-law who has finally accepted her. And he is besotted with his granddaughter.

Then a letter arrives from Lord Gage's estranged family. He learns that his uncle has died in a suspicious manner and his aunt wants them all to come and investigate. Lord Gage left almost fifty years earlier when his choice was to be tried for smuggling or join the Navy. He had a successful Navy career, but he never forgot the betrayal he felt at being sent away.

Keira and Gage manage to convince him to got to his relatives in Cornwall because they are curious. However, the quickly learn that the bad feelings haven't gone away in fifty years and that everyone is lying to them about one thing or another.

Besides the smuggling which the family has not abandoned, there is also the question of some hidden treasure that the family wants found and believes that Lord Gage can locate.

This was an entertaining story with lots of twists and turns and lots of interesting characters.

For some reason, this book took me a bit to read, but it was really, really good! I feel like these sisters will be in my head for quite some time and made me think of the Titanic and what the people went through. Just awful. And how many people lost their husbands, sons, etc. And the love story in this was incredible. I loved to hear the author's thoughts at the end and how she came to write the novel. I was sad to hear in real life that the oldest sister actually married Charles or whoever his name was. Of course, I know the author took a lot of liberties. A great story about three sisters an the relationships. Very, very enjoyable read!! I was nervous when I saw a list of characters at the beginning of the book, but really, I found it very easy to follow. I did reference it with some of the lesser mentioned characters. I also got a special edition hardback of this book that is soft and sprayed edges and it's soooo pretty!! Definitely an added bonus!… (mais)

Interesting family twist can’t save this from being a very low 3. At least Keira has stopped « wrapping (her) arms » around herself all the time.
